Bootcamp started up again today and let me tell you, my legs and eyeballs wanted nothing to do with getting up at 6:15 this morning. Nothing. After a little coercing, I managed to get out of bed and out the door and down the metro escalator. O boy. Walking down stairs was not cool. Lesson number one - ALWAYS stretch after running. I tend to slack off on the stretching, especially when I'm in a rush and I'm always paying for it afterward. Ugh. Bad bad bean!

Luckily our bootcamp instructor was recovering from being sick so he 'took it easy' on us this first class. HA. A bunch of push ups, jumping jacks, 10 sets of stairs, walking lunges and squats, overhead presses, ab work and planks later and I'm a sweaty mess. Oh stairs, how I haven't missed you! I was reminded that my arms are the weakest part of my body ALL DAY haha. And you know what? I love the soreness and the sweat. I guess that's why I keep going back for more ;p
Do you secretly enjoy being sore after a good workout?

Had a busy day at the office and then off to the running store I went. Thankfully, the two hours I was there flew by - we were pretty busy for a Monday night (not that I've ever worked on a Monday :p)! Walked home in some gorgeous evening
weather and Jamie had dinner all ready! Yep, Chef Jamie went to work on some Breaded Pork Tenderloin with Italian Zucchini Saute.
This is sort of a big deal because Jamie made the whole meal on his own - he never cooks whole meals on his own! WOOO! The pork tenderloin was so tender and flavorful, though Jamie will say the breading was too mushy on the bottom, and the zucchini was tangy and oniony and delicious!

And the veggies:
Yum yum!
